"Self Portrait 2" - n/a, & "Pear Bomb" - SOLD
I would like to propose that painting people is hard, and painting yourself, especially from life, is hardEST, like of all things to paint. I wiped this 3 or 4 times, in whole and parts before arriving at this ... somewhat likeness of myself. My husband said it was me, but I don't know. Why did I do this? To be a part of David Lobenberg's self-portrait "love in". I've been meaning to paint one for weeks, but I got a reminder today and just ... did it. The lighting isn't terribly captivating - I just used the light I paint by. I'd like to try again, perhaps from a photo.
When I set this up I thought - it's a bomb!
